. to those members of the united states military who are muslims, thank you for protecting our nation. thank you for standing up against people who are trying to hijack your religion. i hope that's not the case, bob. but we need... his actions do not refleck on the islamic muslim faith. >> schieffer: i'm not suggesting that they do. >> i know. but some people are. some people are. i want to say as a united states senator that i reject that. this man's actions reflect on him. if we miss some signals about him that we should have known, great. but let's don't take this on a level that we should not. let's let's don't accuse people of give him a pass because he's a muslim. i don't think there's any evidence of that. >> schieffer: all right. senator reed, what's your thought on that? >> well, there are approximately 3,000 americans, men and women of the muslim faith who are serving in the army. they've been wounded. some have been killed in action i've been told. their record is one of service and dedication to the nation and selfless service. i agree entirely with senator graham,
